Criminal Trespass

arrestBasically, trespassing is being somewhere you are not supposed to be. While it might seem harmless, it is important to take these types of accusations seriously. Any type of criminal conviction can impact your ability to get jobs and even rent an apartment. Criminal trespass is broken up into two degrees.

First degree criminal trespass is a gross misdemeanor, which means the maximum penalty is 364 days in jail and a $1,000 fine. This is charged when an individual knowingly enters or remains in a building unlawfully. A common example is when someone is asked to leave a restaurant or bar and refuses to leave.

Second degree criminal trespass, instead is a misdemeanor which means the maximum penalty is 90 days in jail and a $1,000 fine. Second degree criminal trespass is like first degree, except without the building. An example would include someone loitering in a non-building parking lot after previously being notified not to do so.

    Mr. Newcombe is an amazing lawyer. My DUI case seemed hopeless. But, he was relentless and just kept fighting and fighting. Right when all hope had seemed lost, we brainstormed and came to a conclusion that helped my case tremendously! I couldnt be happier with choosing Jason as my attorney.

    Jason has successfully contested and won 3 of my family's traffic tickets. His customer service is incredible and he even called me personally to tell me the outcome of the judge's decision. I would highly recommend Jason Newcombe to anyone in need of an attorney.

    Mr. Newcombe is a fantastic lawyer. When I first called his offices, I didn't know where to turn. I was facing a crazy criminal charge, and he ended up getting it completely dismissed. I cannot thank him and his staff enough. They will fight, not just roll over and try to get you to take a deal. I highly recommend him!

    From start to finish with the DUI process Jason Newcombe's office has been more than helpful, friendly, honest and respectful.From the beginning, Jason was on our side and fighting our battle with us. He flat out laid out our options honestly and gave us his opinion on which was the best way to go, but never made the decision for us. Jason is very professional yet personable. We are completely satisfied with our end result. Couldn't ask for a better lawyer to be on your side.

    I cannot thank Mr. Newcombe and his staff enough. They are awesome. When I first contacted his offices, I didn't know what to do. I was overwhelmed and confused. He did an amazing job, I highly recommend him! I had two cases, and he got both of them dismissed. If you are in trouble, do yourself a favor, give him a call.
